Odemwingie not fit to feature against Sheffield Wednesday

01 December 2015, 11:51

London - It's exactly five weeks since Peter Odemwingie played a competitive game for Premier League team Stoke City and the Nigeria international is set for a spell on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury.

The attacker will not return to the Potters squad for their Capital One Cup fixture against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night, manager Mark Hughes has confirmed.

Injuries have limited his appearances for Stoke City since his arrival at the Britannia Stadium from Cardiff City in January 2014, with only 27 games under his belt in 22 months.

Last season, the 34-year-old suffered a cruciate ligament injury in the Premier League tie against Manchester City which ruled him out of action for eight months, and was only able to make five appearances off the bench on his return from the ailment.

Peter Odemwingie was given a run out against Liverpool in Stoke City's first competitive fixture this season on August 9 and did not return to action until five weeks later due to a hamstring complaint.

With his contract set to expire on June 30, 2016, it remains to be seen if he would be offered an extension as he had found game time difficult to come by due to his health condition.
